    I got the 0X5d2 update this morning. I did not have to reset or anything. All is well, and I got a bonus, YouTube. It stopped working on previous 0x059E. I did notice YouTube stutters on startup, but clears up after a second or two. All looks good to me. I do not route HDMI through my Denon AVR. The HDMI cable goes directly to the Sony LCD.

    My daughter, who's home watching tv, says that she is hearing intermittent drops of audio lasting less than a second each.

    It's not permanent, all that data was cleared and will be rebuilt over the next couple of days.

    I love the cast and crew info, use it all the time.

    5D2 seems to have fixed all the issues of HDMI handshake between my Yamaha receiver and HR22-100. Also is relativley faster than previous versions (so far).

    What about those of us who have older HDTV with no HDMI connections. How are we supposed to watch HBO etc.?

    My HR24 in the MBR never had an issue with HMDI before the release, after the release, when hitting the power button, I don't get an HDMI signal. I have had to turn off the power save feature in settings.

    If you have no HDMI connections, then you should have no problem watching HBO, etc. the same way you always have. The protection scheme only causes problems when you have an HDMI connection.

    Then you don't have to worry about HDCP. It only looks for HDCP when HDMI is being used.

    Just wanted to update on my earlier post. Later in the day, the sound worked fine without any reboot. It was just a problem for a few hours in the morning. Go figure?

    I talked with DirecTV this morning about issues with my HR21/700. It freezes during live TV watching and recording playback. It also sometimes resets itself. I have it connected using HDMI cables and have a Yamaha receiver for a Bose surround system. DirecTV wants to send a tech out to check out my system. I have run all the system diagonistics on the system and it passes everything. Is there a way to see if this is my system or a software issues?

    The versions are in hexadecimal so 0x5D2 would be higher.

    With the symptoms described with my HR21/700 receiver, do I have a hardware or a software issue?

    Freezing and resetting is mostly likely hardware.

    HDMI handshake issue temporally resolved on my HR20-100 in the morning, but then reverted back to being an issue later in the day.

    DIRECTV doesn't release dates, past experience tells us it could take a couple weeks.

    So with 05D2 I've had a couple things happen that I have not noticed before.

    One random lockup - required unplugging power which did a reset.

    Initial audio drop - My Yamaha A3000 AVR would lose sound if it didn't have the DTV HR22 selected when previously turning it off. I had to select the HR22 input, then power off the Yamaha and power it back on which then allowed the audio to work OK.

    I don't remember having either of those problems before but at least that dreaded HDMI resolution glitch is fixed (for now at least.)
